Alstor Product Range

The Alstor mini forwarder, is an eight wheel drive machine, designed and built in Sweden to reach difficult & sensitive areas of forestry. There are many load concepts, making the Alstor a very versatile machine for many applications. The constant 8 wheel drive makes the Alstor excellent in challenging and steep terrain and with a low ground pressure and tracks available, it is very well suited to wet sites. Transportation is easy as it can be towed on a trailer behind a suitable 4x4.

Home Forestry llp was the first company in the UK to buy an Alstor 8x8 miniforwarder back in 1998. We carried out the Forestry commission TDB trials and many open workshops. In 1999 we were given the UK and Ireland dealership for Alstor and ever since that time we have worked closely with Alstor to help develop and promote the design and options available. We actively contract and use the Alstor and have a wide knowledge of the design and operational use. We beleive strongly in the Alstor and its concept and the manufacturers In Sweden. The capabilities, outputs and low impact make these small machines perfect for the UK forest. From light thinnings to clear-fell.

Alstor 840 Pro

A hydrostatic combo machine.

With the Alstor 840 Pro, we launch a new machine type based on the same
proven principles as our other machines. With its hydrostatic transmission, the 840 Pro extends the Alstor range including the 821 and 833 models with unrivalled efficiency in the forest.

Just like our other models, the machine is made from

Swedish High-s trength Steel and assembled with modern technologies.

The variable hydrostatic transmission ensures efficient and safe operation in all situations. With its differential locks applied, the machine can climb logs, boulders and other obstacles where others give up. With differential unlocked you will leave the ground untouched. The Alstor 840 Pro is a true combo machine where its bunk and head gate can be completely removed. Using a crane mounted harvester head, thinning and clearing productivity improves significantly. It is a highly flexible load carrier with numerous possibilities for customised adaptation and new challenges.
